Adaptivity, Nimbula Partner to Accelerate Move to the Cloud
At the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, Adaptivity, provider of software solutions for IT transformation, and Nimbula, cloud operating system specialist, announced the integration of Adaptivity’s Blueprint4Cloud decision analytics platform, currently available in beta, with the Nimbula Director cloud platform. Together Nimbula and Adaptivity plan to create a system for building clouds and migrating applications into the cloud.
The Adaptivity Blueprint4Cloud SaaS platform, slated for general availability in Q3 2012, is designed to enable customers to quantify the demands of their business applications and choose the optimal cloud infrastructure to support them. Nimbula Director will be a key launch partner for Blueprint4Cloud, and customers will be able to plan Nimbula Director-based clouds. Director is an IaaS software solution allowing enterprises to build scalable, on-premise private or hybrid clouds prepared for cloud-ready applications.
“Nimbula recognizes that customers want to start turning legacy IT into an internal cloud but oftentimes have difficulty knowing where to start,” said Jeffrey Webb, director of Business Development at Nimbula, in a prepared statement. “With this joint solution, customers can deploy scalable private and hybrid cloud infrastructure and can quickly, efficiently and safely migrate their business applications over to their new cloud infrastructure. This combination is powerful because it helps customers go from bare metal to the application level, bringing the value of cloud all the way to the business.”
“Our goal with Blueprint4Cloud is to help cloud consumers make independent fact based decisions and identify the right solution to meet their specific needs,” said Jason Noel, vice president and Cloud Practice lead at Adaptivity, in the press release. “We are very excited about offering the ability to decision and design for Nimbula Director. The ability of Nimbula Director to seamlessly offer public cloud-like capabilities across a private cloud, Amazon EC2 and VMware environments is going to be very enticing for many of our enterprise customers.”
